Artman publishes chapter in 'Emerging Issues in Tribal-State Relations'


July 08, 2010

Carl Artman, director of the College of Law’s Economic Development in Indian Country Program, has contributed a chapter to a new book, Emerging Issues in Tribal-State Relations, which has recently been published by Thomson. Artman’s contribution is called “Attorney as Facilitator: Working through Economic Development, Energy, and Environmental Issues.”

Artman describes the multiple roles tribal attorneys play as corporate counsel, government counsel, and tribal law experts rolled into one. He also summarizes recent cases that are relevant to tribal economic development, energy and environmental issues. Artman observes that cooperation between tribes, states, and local government is increasing, leading to new opportunities for tribes and therefore for tribal attorneys.

Artman served as the 10th Assistant Secretary – Indian Affairs for the U.S. Department of the Interior and as the Department’s Associate Solicitor for Indian Affairs. An enrolled member of the Oneida Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin, Artman has worked for his tribe as Director of Federal Affairs, Chief Legal Counsel, and as Chief Operating Officer of an Oneida Tribe-owned telecommunications venture.
